TURKEY MEATLOAF MUFFINS
Try this recipe for those days when you are in a hurry. Make a batch of these Turkey Meatloaf Muffins at the beginning of the week & grab them as you need a quick, clean meal. Anytime I eat these around someone they always ask me for the recipe. They are good hot or cold & I have recently started putting a little bit of mustard on top…DELICIOUS!
Also, if turkey isn’t your thing, you can substitute ground chicken breast for this recipe or any recipe of ours that calls for lean ground turkey.

Please see below for macro information – I’ll also update the post. Keep in mind this could vary just a bit depending on if you use lean turkey, extra lean turkey, ground chicken, etc. 🙂

I used to make these when I first started with Jamie’s 12 week plan. They are so delicious and moist. Used to make a large batch and then freeze them. I highly recommend them.
. It’s a great make ahead for the week. Tasty and easy to reheat. Worse that can happen is only having one left when there’s two of us. thanks for a great recipe.
Great recipe to meal prep for the week! Easy to make; I’ve been making these for a few years. For my own personal taste, I found that 1/2 tsp spice for 2 pounds of ground turkey was not nearly enough, so I actually used 1 tsp per pound. To me it has more flavor.
I’ve been making these for years.
Try making at start of your week for your meal prep. I eat 2 at my meals w/a nice salad or roasted veggies (beets & sweets)! I substitute fresh broccoli florets from
Produce section. I used gf quick oats. I also add celery salt.
They store in fridge nicely in a large ziploc and make it easy for my clean eating plan. Dip in brown mustard and sriracha!
